Wulfeck Decides On Wake

Alex Wulfeck, one of the top punters in the state of Florida, has decided to accept a preferred walk-on offer from Wake Forest. DeaconSports spoke with Alex about his decision.

Special teams has been vital to the success of the Wake Forest program. On Monday, the Demon Deacons added another high level specialist to the fold when Alex Wulfeck from the Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida decided to join the program.

"It feels really good," stated Wulfeck. "I have felt like Wake was the place for me since I camped there last summer. Their coaching staff was really honest with me which means a lot. Also, I think Wake provides the best opportunity."

Last week, head coach Jim Grobe called Wulfeck and expressed his plans for the talented punter. "I had a great talk with Coach Grobe. He said Shane and I would compete for the starting job next season. He also stated how important special teams was to him and how he liked it best when they had a separate punter and kicker."

Wulfeck is continuing to train for next season and is working hard to improve as a punter. "I am working with Mike Hollis and strength coach Chris Bland. I am just trying to get as strong as possible before next season."

During his senior season, Wulfeck had 14 punts for a 43 yard average and 6 punts inside the 20. He was also the holder for field goals and extra points the past three seasons for Bolles. Wulfeck also had preferred walk-on offers from Illinois, Florida, Arkansas, and others.
